Off the Record are looking for enthusiastic and innovative volunteers to join a new and exciting 12 month pilot supporting young people aged 11-15 in outreach settings across South Gloucestershire. Applications welcome from counsellors or those in their final year of counselling training desired as well as those with other therapeutic and youth work backgrounds.
Working collaboratively as part of a multi-disciplinary team you will be responsible for offering 1:1 therapeutic support as well as the possibility of group sessions and sign-posting to children and young people to help build their resilience.
You will receive regular group supervision and ongoing support from a Team Leader and qualified Counsellor. In return we ask that you commit to a minimum of 5 hours/week for a minimum of 6 months.
If interested please send your CV with a brief cover letter to email@example.com
We offer voluntary opportunities for both qualified and student practitioners! You can expect to play a full part in the OTR experience for young people so you will need to be able to commit to at least five hours per week.
Please note, this is a competitive process and you will at least need to be in the third/final year of a recognised professional qualification. Experience working directly with young people in a related capacity is also an advantage. We provide regular in-house multi-disciplinary group supervision as well as training and expenses.
Here at OTR we really do embrace diversity, so we’re less interested in your theoretical orientation than your ability to build relationships with young people. All our volunteers work within our city centre service, which runs six days a week and offers brief interventions.
We especially welcome applications from Black and Minority Ethnic counsellors/students, and those able to work with children (11-13) as well as young people.
You can apply at any time, just fill out the form below, tell us when you are available to volunteer (tick all the boxes that apply) and attach your CV. Before you do that though we recommend you read our Volunteer Terms of Engagement so you know what to expect from your time with us – and what we will expect from you. Once we receive your application we’ll be in touch when vacancies arise that match your availability to arrange an interview with one of the team.
